Gifts For Mums & Special Step Mums
What can we say about mums that hasn't already been said? Not much really. They're loving, they're caring, they're always there for us when we need them most, and with all that considered, there is only one day a year to celebrate their contribution to our lives?! We think that's a rip off. It should be Mother's Day every day! And with Yellow Octopus' expansive collection of gifts for mums, it can be!
Our collection of gifts for mums includes a little something for every kind of Aussie mum out there, ranging from mums that may as well moonlight as Michelin star chefs, to mums who take DIY home design to another level. Does your mum take pride in keeping an immaculate home and backyard space? How about some handy kitchenware gifts, or some cute plant pots for the garden? Or is your mum more of a LOLs person, who's more or less leaned into her new identity as an empty nester? Then why not get her something funny from our huge range of novelty gifts or her, perfect for mums who live for the weekend? Get your mum a sneaky pressie from Yellow Octopus by shopping our range of top gifts for mums today!

Whether you're looking for a funny novelty gift to make her laugh, or a thoughtful token of your endless gratitude, the joymakers at Yellow Octopus are here to help. So, without further ado, here are Olli the Octopus’ top 30 unique gift ideas for mums:
One of our favourite gifts for mums with plenty of sass to dole out, the ‘Thanks For Putting Up With My Sh#t’ novelty milk chocolate block is a devilishly delicious delight that any mum would be more than happy to receive.
Is your mum an avid Melbourne foodie? Then Broadsheet Melbourne’s stunningly presented cookbook may be the perfect gift for your mum on her next birthday, anniversary, or any other major upcoming celebration. With over 80 recipes collected from the city of Melbourne’s most iconic restaurants, bars, and other eateries, the Broadsheet Melbourne cookbook is likely to be the pride of your mum’s personal library.
A beautifully illustrated book that’s bursting with character, ‘Where The Wild Mums Are’ is guaranteed to make the perfect gift for new mums, expectant mothers, and all other mums who just deserve a good, old-fashioned break.
Cats come in a wide range of colours, so it’s only natural to have some cat wine markers to make your mum’s next evening playing host a veritable breeze. This particular gift idea for mum is guaranteed to bring a smile not only to any mum’s face, but also to any and all of her posse of fellow crazy cat ladies!
If your mum is a little extra, then she’ll be sure to love this stunning (and certifiably bougie) Persian Rug-esque cheese serving board. Made of high-quality, heat resistant, stain proof and scratch proof glass, this cheese serving board is definitely going to be a fun addition to your mum’s breakfast tray if you’ll be starting her special day off with a delectable breakfast in bed!
Is your mum a fan of antiquities or keepsakes from yesteryear? Is she a lover of all things rhythmic? Then our vintage style gramophone record player may just be the perfect gift for your mum this Mother’s Day, on her next milestone birthday, or for any other occasion that calls for a lively celebration. A fully functional gramophone record player that’s operated by crank for total authenticity, this gift idea is sure to bring a little joy and merriment to both mum and dad this year.
The fun and practical gift ideas that are quirky mugs and gardening themed goodies come together in this gorgeous, little mug! Fitted with a cute gumboot handle and bearing a quirky garden print, this mug is definitely poised to be your mum’s go-to coffee accessory on misty Sunday mornings.
Sometimes, the best gifts for mums are ones that satisfy their universal love of jigsaw puzzles. But why be so two-dimensional? With our Neuschwanstein Castle 3D puzzle, mum can spend her big day crowded around the coffee table with all her favourite people, building a stunning 1:200 scale replica of Germany’s iconic Neuschwanstein Castle, also known as the inspiration behind Disney’s famous Sleeping Beauty castle. Mums who are avid Disney fans are also highly likely to adore this gift idea.
For any parents that are still tackling houses filled with teenagers, look no further than this ‘Control Your Family’ mouth spray! This ‘mentally minty mouth spray’ may be just the gift for mums who are looking to brace themselves before big family dinner parties. Is it an effective form of mind control? You’ll just have to wait and see!
Looking to find presents for mums with a sweet tooth? If your mum is one for “Death By Chocolate”, then this delicious cookbook filled with similar desserts that are all worth dying for is guaranteed to feel right at home in her own library of recipe books. The recipes are also split into sections in this innovative collection, allowing mum to find the perfect desserts to suit her fancy. Just be sure to find a suitable recipe for her birthday cake so that she can sample her gift from the get-go.
Prepare to witness the happiest coffee table book that you will ever see. Any mums who are animal lovers are likely to fall quickly in love with all the joyous sentiments and cute photos of snoots and floofs that you’ll find in the pages of this glorious book. The smiles will start as soon as your mum unwraps ‘The Little Book Of Happiness: Dogs’, and won’t be fading anytime soon.
Is your mum’s home filled with vintage paraphernalia and bright colours, akin to what you may find in an American-style diner? Does she have a sharp sense of humour, so to speak? Whilst these delicate pastel pink oven mitts may make a more cutesy first impression, it won’t take long for mum to realise that this gift is a bit more dark and devilish than it appears. But if the mitts fit…
Never underestimate the power of positive affirmations. These daily messages of self-love and optimistic thinking can be a form of medicine in themselves, which is precisely why ‘Happy Pills’ have come into existence. This little corked bottle of pills contains either 31 or 100 enclosed messages that your mum can unscroll whenever she may need a little pick-me-up. ‘Happy Pills’ are the perfect gift for mums who appreciate each and every silver lining.
Some mums may claim that they can feel when rain is about to come in their knees, their arms, their elbows, or any other number of body parts that definitely don’t sound like they’d be clairvoyant. So why not get mum a gift that’ll actually help her predict the weather, or at least support her existing weather prediction abilities? This mesmerising crystal ball will change its appearance depending on atmospheric fluctuations, equipping it with the ability to forecast snow, rain, thunderstorms, heavy winds, and even clear skies with ease.
This Mother’s Day, give your mother a gift that’ll light up her life and let her know just how much you care. This LED Wishing Bottle won’t just be a fantastic source of ambient life that your mum can take with her wherever she goes, but its heartfelt message that becomes visible when the bottle is powered up will serve as a consistent reminder to mum of just how much she is loved and appreciated.
What exactly does it mean to be a mother? It’s a far trickier word to define than ‘dad’, that much can be agreed on. ‘Mum’ is an all-encompassing word that stands for love, family, support, and all the other amazing, positive attributes that we find in ourselves. This ‘Definition of Mum’ stemless wine glass is sure to be the perfect gift for mums who deserve to know just how impactful they have been and just how much gratitude is coming their way on any given day.
Struggling to find a gorgeous and practical gift idea for mums who seem to have everything or who aren’t particularly wanting for anything? If your mum is not at all the materialistic type, then some fabulous homewares could be the best kinds of gifts for her. We absolutely have to single out our Eldis Solid Wood London Wall Clock here. This totally silent clock is the perfect addition to any minimalist or contemporary modern home, making it an ideal gift for mums with refined tastes.
If mum is an aficionado of all things cacao, then she’ll absolutely love this chocolate making kit. This Mad Millie Dark Chocolate Making Kit comes complete with everything mum will need to create her own vegan-friendly chocolatey creations, including silicone chocolate bar moulds, cocoa butter, raw organic cocoa powder, and delectable coconut sugar. Mums deserve only the best, most premium chocolate ingredients, after all.
The best gifts for mums who wear the pants at home are a comfy pair of socks to match! These ‘Queen Mum’ off-duty non-slip socks are the ultimate lazy Sunday accessory for all mums who appreciate being nice and toasty on their well-earned days off.
Get mum a gift that’s just as fun as it is practical for her next birthday! Our Mount Fury Volcano Microwave Cleaner is the ultimate gift for mums who want to blitz through all their household chores with handy tools that are just as much a treat to use as they are to receive as gifts. Using a simple mixture of water, vinegar, and any additional optional scented ingredients like lemon juice, this microwave cleaner can help mum easily remove any and all food residue, grease, or other build ups from the inside of her microwave. No heavy scrubbing involved!
If you share fond memories of making cress eggs with your mum or using eggshells in your childhood garden, then mum is sure to love this little gift idea. Our Eggling Crack & Grow Planter Kits allow mum to effortlessly grow lemon balm plants right at home. We recommend storing your little Egglings on your kitchen windowsill so that they can get plenty of sun and are always in reach during tea time.
For mums who are avid entertainers, then there may not be a better gift idea for her than this nifty after dinner trivia game. With 300 trivia cards over six different categories, this trivia kit is the perfect appetiser to kick off your next family board game night.
Novelty kitchen accessories are amongst the best gifts for mums who appreciate the little things in life, or are likely to go for functionality over flair on any given day of the week. If your mum isn’t one for buying fun things for herself, however, then this little KitTea Cat Tea Infuser is definitely going to be a welcome addition to her kitchen space.
The ultimate low-maintenance flower pot, our Eva Solo Self-Watering Flowerpot is an ideal gift for mums who love to travel and may find themselves out of the house on a regular basis. But just because you have a busy schedule, doesn’t mean that you can’t have a green thumb too!
Is mum a fan of Dame Edna, and definitely not a fan of cutting onions? Then she absolutely needs a pair of these fancy onion glasses. Just make sure that she doesn’t bring it out with her on nights out, because as tempting as it may be to take these out on the town, these are definitely not club-friendly. Trust us.
It’s actually a lot easier than you think to make your own bath bombs right from home, which is precisely what makes this particular gift a perfect gift option for mums who are avid crafters.
If your mum doesn’t hear ‘the magic words’ half as often as she should, then we have two suggestions for you. First off, respect your elders! Secondly, you need to gift her this ‘Thank You!’ Button so that she can at least take control of her affirmations. After all, what better gift is there for mums of moody teenagers?
Speaking of affirmations, there’s nothing quite like an exercise in self-care to boost anybody’s mood on their birthday, especially for mums who may be feeling melancholy as they experience birthday after birthday without the presence of grandkids. So while she waits, why not do a 30 Day Happiness Challenge or two? Mum is sure to love this gift idea that’s designed to help foster naturally positive thinking. And the best part is that you can easily do it with her too!
Another fantastic gardening gift for mums with green thumbs, this swan watering can is sure to brighten both her birthday as well as her backyard space. And with a 2L capacity, this gift idea is just as practical as it is gorgeous!
Is mum a fan of wine in the summertime? Al fresco drinking becomes a lot more low-maintenance when you use one of these innovative floating wine glasses. Designed to float on water or be stuck into the ground by its sturdy spike, this floating wine glass is the perfect gift for mums who want to spend their special day at the beach or any other idyllic outdoor setting.
